10/11/2016 Hatebreed, DevilDriver, Devil You Know (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Talk about a stacked bill! It was awesome to see Devil You Know again, after seeing them in May at Montage. Their list was slightly shorter this time out, and I got to see A New Beginning, which they didn’t play at Montage. Some of the crowd actually knew a couple of the songs, almost […]

09/28/2016 Clutch, Zakk Sabbath, Kyng (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

This was a legitimate rock show! I’d come to be a pretty big Clutch fan in the last couple years, Zakk Wydle doing his Black Sabbath cover routine as direct support, and some serious hard rockers in Kyng as the first band on? Sign me up. Kyng was very good, a hard driving capital-R Rock […]

08/31/2016 Prophets Of Rage, Wakrat (Niagara Falls, NY @ Rapids Theater)

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

When it was announced that 3/4 of Rage Against The Machine would be getting together with B-Real from Cypress Hill and Chuck D from Public Enemy (along with PE’s DJ Lord, and with Zack de la Rocha’s blessing) as Prophets Of Rage, I know I was excited to see how they would look and sound, […]

07/24/2016 Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Alter Bridge, Saint Asonia (Darien, NY @ Darien Lake Performing Arts Center)

Monday, July 25th, 2016

As this was going to be my only “big” show of the summer, I splurged for what ended up being 2nd row behind the GA pit. Nice and close. I rolled into Darien, and for a little bit of deja-vu, I actually parked at the Cherry Hill campground, as Bob and Michelle were camping there […]

05/22/2016 All That Remains (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

It had been a good five years since I’d last seen All That Remains (the 2011 Share The Welt tour with Five Finger and Hatebreed), and I was less-than-impressed with the song selection that time out. However, a headlining set in my “hometown” club, while the band is between albums? This was a much better […]

05/13/2016 Texas Hippie Coalition, Sons Of Texas, Dear Mr. Dead (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Saturday, May 14th, 2016

TEXAS! Obviously the theme of the night. I was stoked to see Sons of Texas, as I’d been spinning Baptized in the Rio Grande since it came out. And they rocked. Lots of intensity, they played all the heavy stuff (none of the ballads), and kept the crowd into it the whole time. Not a […]

05/06/2016 Like A Storm, Devil You Know, Oni (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

Montage billed this as a double headliner – as in they booked both Like A Storm and Devil You Know both on their own headlining runs the same night. Devil You Know got their support act on the bill too, and Oni was a damn cool opener. How many metal bands have you ever heard […]

09/18/2015 GWAR, Butcher Babies (Rochester, NY @ Water Street Music Hall)

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

When I saw this was announced, I knew I had to see them again. It had been since August of 2007 that I’d seen GWAR, so despite still not knowing any songs beyond Saddam A Go Go, I knew I’d have a blast. I got in during Butcher Babies set, and as a metal band […]

08/15/2015 Psychostick, Wolfborne, Beneath Hells Sky, Murder In Rue Morgue (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

I ended up meeting a buddy of mine at this show, so both Derek and I didn’t really pay attention to the openers all that much. Wolfbourne was a Canadian straight-ahead heavy rock band, and the tunes weren’t too bad, nothing that wouldn’t be out of place on Octane. They were pretty decent. I had […]

08/08/2015 Coal Chamber, Fear Factory, Jasta (Rochester, NY @ Water Street Music Hall)

Monday, August 10th, 2015

This was a fun one, and a show I was looking forward to for quite awhile. A chance to see Jamey Jasta do some solo stuff, another chance to see Fear Factory (this time with Dino), and while I was never a big fan, get my nu-metal on and see Coal Chamber for the first […]
